I'm not familiar with the Mobil DTE 10 oil, don't know the specs, but the AW46 or AW32 should work just fine. I've been using AW46 oil for years with no issues.

As near as I can tell, the above quote was the first 10,000th post by any member of this site. And it passed totally without fanfare or even mention.

Nobody else is even close yet. I mean, we all knew the guy was long winded, but damn... :eek:

Seriously though, there are few people that have earned my respect in the manner he has. In addition to his role as a Moderator, he gives selflessly of his encyclopedic knowledge to any and all that have need of it. He exemplifies what this place is all about.

I think I can speak for every one of us in saying, Thank you, Willie. :notworthy

I want to be the first to congratulate Willie on reaching that milestone, and look forward to celebrating his next 10,000.

Whao, wait, what??? I was so busy running my mouth I hadn't even noticed! :eek:

But in all honesty, I appreciate the accolades, but that's not what I'm all about, I've said it before some several thousand posts ago that I've done a helluva lot of stuff in my life, more than I can even list here, and therefore have a whole lot of stuff in my head. And by virtue of that experience, and by no means to self aggrandize myself, I would be most disappointed in myself if I didn't share at least a little of the knowledge that I've gained over the years as opposed to never share it and instead it pass away when I expire, and thanks to Steve Frazier, HEF has provided a way to do just that. I have to tip my hat to Steve and say thank you. :drinkup

Willie,my hat is off to you and I agree with you wholeheartedly,sharing what we have worked so hard for over the years is really the only satisfaction that we can realize after all that work which was fun to us at the time.
I am at the stage in my life that helping others is about all I can do and we do it without a care as to who gets the credit.Carry on brother.Ron G

I wonder how many it would be if TGIF posts counted? Cause lets not forget, Willie contributes a lot of BS to HEF as well. :D

I think that would apply to a good number of members here mitch, and yes, I'm full of it. But when it comes to BS, I wager Tiny got me beat there, he's about three sizes bigger than me, a lot more room for BS to accumulate inside Sasquatch. :cool2
